This page honors those warriors who hit the big numbers. I have created a 100 MPH club and a 90 MPH club. If you belong in one of these clubs, let me know. NO pretenders! I want only legitimate speeds here and no "theoretical" speeds. HydroStreams only! Let me know your top speed as recorded by GPS or radar, and the prop you used to get there.

 

 

There is something special about hitting that triple digit mark. These guys deserve a lot of credit for reaching this elite club.
